ACV Pedals For A Good Cause
The gang at Air Canada Vacations was out in force recently to participate in the Pedal for Kids fundraising event that supports the Montreal Children’s Hospital.
The ACV team hopped on a 30-seat bike and rolled through the streets of downtown Montreal to attract attention to the initiative.
It’s the fifth year that ACV has taken part in the event and so far the company has raised $107,665 – $15,890 was raised this year alone.
Pedal for Kids is one of the most important fundraisers for the Montreal Children’s Hospital. The first ride on the big bike was in 1992. It was headed by Sylvie Lalumiere and Michael Conway in memory of their daughter Meagan who received treatment at the hospital.
The cause has raised more than $10,450,000 to date. These funds have been used to conduct research, purchase medical equipment and provide development and training opportunities.
